levees. i kept thinking, the category 5 levees we need are shelter and quality education and health care for everybody and infrastructure and transportation so that people can move on. is there any possibility of taking that and making it a broader conversation, environmental policy or housing policy that makes it easier to manage this? >> i think there is. i agree with neera that people like this post-partisan moment. they are tired of partisan politics and nothing getting done. we need it all. we need education and infrastructure. bloomberg endorsed obama citing global warming as the cause. twice in the last 14 months, new york city has had to evacuate. that has never happened before in the city's history. all these things are in play. this has changed the dynamic. there is a sense we need to move on this. i wish we could have bipartisan agreement on how to move forward. >> it is tough to have bipartisan agreement when republicans keep being climate change designers and anti-science in a variety of ways. >> anti-science, we are still dealing with 46 million people on food stamps. we ar
and probability of ending affirmative action in education? >> well, i hope very good. my law firm brought the case gebs the -- against the university of michigan and law school. we brought that original case ten years ago, won against the law school, lost against undergrads because of sandra day o'connor who says we need 25 more years of affirmative action. now we have constitutional provisions with expiration dates. [laughter] there's -- there's -- an interesting book called "mismatched" by two liberals making the argument with empirical evidence that affirmative action is harmful to black people. what a surprise. liberals try to help, ruin black people's lives. that's the story of the book. their argument is by if it's a little bit of affirmative action, not bad, but elevating people to schools they are not ready for and where everyone else has higher scores, they get discouraged, depressed, feel stupid, drop out, easy subjects. one way liberals brushed the sad results of affirmative action under the rug is all the black studies courses which just pushes them off into a ghetto. how do they cover
cases for local government are best partners at fighting poverty, improving education, that kind of stuff. >> governor walker, for you as well, the defining issue that determines the outcome in your state? >> well it's certainly about jobs. in our case it's elections are fundamentally about the future and not about the past. so i think people on the few weeks back on that night in denver and john's state outside of his hometown there when voters got to see that mitt romney had a plan and the president didn't. and now in the last few days, he's trying to gloss that over with a 20-page glossy document. he doesn't have a plan, mitt romney does. in fact just yesterday as i was traveling the state, there were literally farmers out in fields that had almost like a burma shave commercial. they had one sign after another after another that listed out the five points of his plan. people want to know how they're going to get working in janesville or green bay or wausau or milwaukee or superior. they want to know how we're going to get working again. i think it was clear after the debate. w

increasingly going the way of the dinosaur. a number of factors contribute. education one of them. training is another. and in terms of our tax structure it needs to be more progressive than it is now, and i think we really need a leader who is going to address those changes and work on rebuilding the very systems that make america america. >> the honeymoon. >> that's something on your mind. >> yeah. it was really great. these wedding things are hard. planning. >> can i see a picture, though. >> yeah. let's see. >> you guys are a great looking couple. >> look at that. that is us from our wedding day. the honeymoon is great. we went to brazil, and we went hang glided and spent a lot of time biking and going on the beach, and we hiked sugarloaf mountain. it was great. and really nice to go away. and i have to be honest, the first two days it rained while we were there, so we were all caught up on down abbey. >> i can't remember the last time i was around the dinner table. last movie i saw was "argo." i love clint eastwood. but i really liked "trouble with the curve." a hell of a movie. great.
of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine. would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years.

to recover. and the education agenda that i've got is one that even jeb bush has occasionally complimented because we have said, you can't just give more money into a system without reforming it, and there's got to be more accountability. so there are a whole range of issues, i think, where we can actually bring the country together with a nonideological agenda. the question's going to be how do republicans in congress react post-election. because there's going to be a war going on inside that party. it just hasn't broken out.en un to me. >> let's say you win. boehner is still speaker and the house goes either democratic or republican by one, you're still in the same situation the next four years, so what's going to make the difference? we talked to you about this one on one before. what makes the difference? what is there for americans to believe that democrats and republicans can work together? >> i truly believe that if we can get the deficit and debt issues solved, which i believe we can get done, you know, in the lame duck or in the immediate aftermath of the lame duck, then that clea
't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008, when we talked about change i told you, i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long. by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word. by folks who would say anything to win office and do anything to stay there. the protectors of the status quo are a powerful force in washington. and over the last four years, every time we've tried to make change, they've foug
with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, give
education he mentioned and choice and marriage equality and most emphatically, if you look at the fact he believes in science and does not scoff at the idea of climate change and has taken concrete action to combat it, mr. bloomberg said the choice to him is clear. "one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." this endorsement criticized mitt romney's leadership on the other hand saying, "in the past mr. romney has also taken sensible positions, but he has reversed course on all of them and is even running against the health care model he signed into law in massachusetts." mike bloomberg criticizes mr. romney specifically for flip-flopping and dropping his previous positions on climate change then says, "this issue is too important. we need determined leadership at the national level." in other words, i don't think we're going to get determined leadership from mitt romney. i think he has taken occasionally attractive positions, but leadership, no. speak
for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playing social conservative politics all throughout his campaign. all of his sort of commentary about women's issues and reproductive rates. his commentary about race and class and education, all the things he's been talking about in terms of his campaign have been on the socially conservative sizde. it doesn't make sense he wouldn't appoint judges that are socially conservative and engage in politics that are socially conservative and play to the tea party base of the republican party. that doesn't make sense unless he's playing fast and furious with the truth. according to what he's done up to this point, martin, i'm not sure we can trust him on this idea that he's not going to engage in socially conservative politics
reproductive rights and access is not a distraction from real issues. women's health, education aal opportunities, and economic equality are directly related to unfettered safe access to birth control and abortion. in countries where women control their own fertility, they are more educated, less poor, and more likely to be engaged politically. but mitt romney prefer that supreme court kol women's choices. he would like to see rowe v. wade overturned. president obama, on the other hand, has never waivered in his staunch assertion that women can be trusted to make their own decisio decisions. joining me on my panel here is author of "big girls don't cry." first, i want to bring in my very special guest from oakland, california, democratic senator barbara boxer. senator, it is so good for you to join us this evening. thank you. >> i'm delighted. just delighted. >> senator boxer, talk to me a bit about what we saw happen in 2008 on the one hand sort of women showing up in an amazing way as secretary of state clinton has said, putting all of those cracks in the glass ceiling and then ro

the great work that you do to help educate america. my wishes only every liberal was required to hear you or read your books. >> contribute to why af we are often the only conservatives that college kids will hear in four years at college. at syracuse a couple years ago when told me about everything happening in a green party meeting. i said are you able? how you know, ? he said i used to be a green. what are you doing a of the republican club? he said you spoke year after 9/11 and nobody else made sense. so i became a republican and [applause] there's a reason they don't college students to hear me. >> that leads into my question. i am surrounded by so many liberals that formed their opinion on only half of the information. try listening to fox news or and -- down hall or ann coulter. how do steer them to listen that is not just liberal based? why can't the republicans do a better job to explain conservative values? what can be done about it? >> as far as liberals to unplug their years that is a challenge. when he moved in one year-ago every single one was a liberal he has now proudly an
and helped david horowitz educate america that have very unchain really badly needs it. every -- >> they sent right-wingers like david and me to college campuses where often the only conservative campuses but here in four years of college at syracuse university a few years ago, i usually have dinner with college republicans afterwards. on one of them told me about everything happening at a green party meeting. i said finally, what are you a mall? how do you know? he said no, used to be green. i said what are you doing at the member of the republican click now? and he said he spoke year after 9/11 and nobody else is making sense. you were the only person who made sense, so i became a republican. [applause] there's a reason they don't want college students to hear me and david. >> that kind of that kind of leads me to make two part question is then surrounded by so many liberals have informed opinion, but only on half the information. i say what it should try listening fox news or ann coulter or david horowitz or some thing. so i guess one quick question is how is she steered them to listen to
or two big ballot measures that were really well campaigned on and educated and then you made your decision, that would be one thing. what we've seen is too much democracy, too much choice, which is a practical matter, you have down ballot voting where a lot of people don't bother to choose. the people who do choose aren't as well informed. i'll question back to the saturday night live ad about the undecided voters. when is the election some who? s who is the president? and be specific. and if you have trouble remembering the two people running for president, what do you think happening in a confusing 1% worded ballot like that. >> but sometimes there is a decent amount of information. the key one that i'm focusing on is the maryland marriage equality one. and there is a lot of information and a lot of bhalgts grounding going on with that. but i'm still distressed because it's not clear to me that someone's fundamental civil rights ought to be on a ballot. i mean, if slavery had been voted on, pretty sure it would have taken another, i don't know, tech and i had, two decades, maybe
been made by the social services, by law enforcement, public safety, by education, health care. this is what it looks like when people come together and do the right thing. >> and that seems to be a real coop r cooperation. also, among your constituents, what do you say to people who are listening to you in other areas that are going to be impacted by this storm that you would urge them to do that you see your own constituents doing at your own urging? >> the first is act early. don't wait for the storm to land on you. act early. and the second is, help your neighbors. the general just said, first responders can only do so much. neighbors have to help neighbors and that's the effort we're engaged in. we're very proud of our public citizens who work so hard here. >> all right. thank you so much, congressman andrews. thank you for your time and be safe. >> thank you, reverend. you as well. >>> coming up, we'll go live to the jersey shore. >>> and why events like this remind us how important the federal government is. our continuing coverage of the hurricane sandy is coming up. st

for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> donald trump is back. mitt romney thinks that will help? that's next. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] don't just reject convention. drown it out. introducing the all-new 2013 lexus ls f sport. an entirely new pursuit. >>> the land of falsehoods and extreme ideas. you just passed into the republican zone. >> that's right. a lot of folks on the right have entered an alternate universe, called the republican zone. a bizarre world that there is no resemblance to reality at all. did you know that
rid of the data. earlier they were face wd a new report from their own education department showing that charter school kids were falling behind public school kids. how do you deal with your own administration's data on underperforming charter schools? you cut back on the data that you collect about charter schools. the bush administration just announced they would be collecting less data going forward. in 2003, after the bush administration labor department report detailed mass layoffs in the manufacturing sector, the bush administration announced they were going to stop publishing information about mass layoffs. if we get rid of the data pointing to a problem, maybe the data wouldn't look so bad. the obvious move is to get rid of it. this was a hall mark of the george w. bush administration and it appears to be one of the things that mr. romney liked very much about the george w. bush administration. it at least appears to be one of the things that he's promising to bring back. you don't like the data presented? kill the report. after the totally unimpeachable ly did a report conc
